Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, and the story of indie rock’s best new supergroup


Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus make records that seemingly flaunt their loneliness to make the listener feel less alone. Devastatingly honest, each singer-songwriter’s most recent record—Baker’s Turn Out The Lights, Bridgers’ Stranger In The Alps, and Dacus’ Historian, all out in the past year or so—provides an unflinching and overwhelmingly vulnerable look at themselves and their past relationships, at times both embracing darkness and searching for the dim proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. Although their individual lyrics feature varying levels of self-deprecation and their instrumentation ranges from sparse acoustic arrangements to blistering, fist-in-the-air indie-rock jams, they’re each constantly searching for someone, anyone, to pull them out of the rut they’ve created for themselves in their music.
